Re: Returning Ministry

My recollection is not that they could demand the waste paper back for recycling but that once I had left I would get no more, and no refund, even though I had paid in advance. They have always been paranoid that anyone might actually know what they preach, despite the rather ambitious claims on the...

Re: Litigation

The EB have, for some time, tried to make out that somehow it is wrong or even illegal to disagree with them. They know that what they do is unacceptable and hate it to be exposed, especially when their own words come back to haunt them. So they label people as 'known opposers', as if, somehow, that...

Re: Glacier Trail 2018

Re: A question

Almost certainly - and indeed in my experience - any account, including Rebecca's, will have some variations (for example with dates) from another account. The gospel writers are a good example of this. Most Christians would not stop reading the Bible because of this. Some fundamentalists would say ...
